    Spider plants do not like cold at all. They could go outside for part of the year, but if temperatures are going to get anywhere near 40 degrees, you'd have to bring them in.

    I live in the middle Georgia area. I planted spider plants around a tree in my yard many years ago. They die down in the winter and come back each spring.

    In live in the south. They are outside bulb. In the spring they just pop up like a spring surprise. I love it.

    Photo would help. You may or may not have a spider plant (which is NOT an outdoor plant and is NOT a bulb) but procreates by hanging "runners" with babies at the end which can be cut off, suspended in water to get them to start rooting and then planted. What you maybe have is what is called monkey grass which will grow in the ground and put out purple flowers. Look both of them up for photos and decided what you have and how to propagate or plant--indoors or out.

    We live on the gulf coast in Alabama and true spider plants will winter here outside quite well. If they die back they will come right back in the spring. We do try to protect them but it seems harder on the plants to bring them inside for the winter. They dry out and yellow a lot. The babies are so sweet to plant more and more of them.....

    I live in the Dallas, Texas area and leave it planted in my outdoor flower bed. It dies off each winter and sprouts out each spring better than ever. It may not be a bulb,but it certainly acts like one and I do know it is a spider plant. Got tired of it drying out every winter indoors and separated and planted it outdoors.

    Spider plants are outdoor plants as are all plants. Plants survive indoors when the outdoors is not compatible with their usual habitat. i.e. rain forest plants in Wyoming. I live in California and have spiders that are in part sun and somewhat sheltered from winter frost. They are full and beautiful now. hope that helps
